This concept came from one of my mid-morning sketchbook brainstorms over jasmine-green tea. It was a glimpse of a young boy standing in a circle of snow hares, being crowned their king. Like many of my self-motivated pieces, the image did not need to arise from a full understanding of an entire story, but rather came from trying to fully envision and illustrate the scene I had snared in my mind's eye. I'm still having fun imagining the story behind the scene...
Does the story exist yet? As one interested in using hares in narratives, I'd love to figure out what gets a little blond boy the crown and what the hares will do no that they have a king. The basket and the staff add to the evocative nature of the image.
Ooh, it's adorable! I love the wings of the owl.
This one has the feel a very well crafted fable; it is very rich with potential story threads. The light and palette are wonderful. Very well done, Laura.
Woah, I love the white owl :3
I like the concept and everything really.
